Discovery of Motion: An Introduction to Natural Philosophy, Part I is an overview of the progress of science and human understanding that debunks the notion that progress happened at a snail's pace. Rather, Discovery of Motion asserts, scientific understanding grew in great leaps - from Aristotle's theories to the radical transformations of Newton's laws, and a similarly overwhelming transition to Einstein's models. Written for readers of all ages and backgrounds, Discovery of Motion offers a fascinating glimpse of "the big picture" of human understanding, with especial attention paid to principles of empiricism versus idealism. Recommended especially for high school and public libraries for its reader-friendly style and presentation. A companion volume, "Discovery of Matter" is forthcoming.
